The thing that I have been most affected by and will always remember most from this visit was my interactions with #rohingya #refugees themselves. Here we got the chance to talk to new arrivals, who had just walked days from #myanmar to save their lives and were still being processed. Clearly still traumatized, each had either had a relative murdered, tortured, maimed or raped, if they themselves were not themselves victims to a heinous crime. I would later learn that this was true for every #rohingya refugee we met in the entire camp.
Coming from a family of #holocaust survivors who faced statelessness, including my own father, I don’t know how not to take this personally.
